Easiest Class to use.
Easily the heavy, huge health, massive gun that messes you up in 3 seconds, and medics love you, but I would like to hear your opinions.

Soldier: you don't even have to aim with him, really.

Shoot at ground, instant one-shot-kill splash damage.

Medic , with the one click to heal option turned on.

Medic. All u need is decent communication with your heal target and ur good to go.
Heavy is a really hard class to master. whoever thinks its a w+m1 all the time is purely mistaken.

Besides the medic, there is the Engy, also easy class. Proof: All the girls in the game pick those 2 classes. Hense those r the 2 easiest classes.
Well, I'd say medic or engie, but when I was first learning (back in the xbox version days) a lot of new players gravitated towards the pyro. Sure, they'd get slaughtered in open ground and forget they had a shotgun for ranged attacks, but up close it doesn't take much aim to flail a flamethrower around and still be effective with it. So, an unskilled player can still contribute with one of those 3.

Medic is only going to be easy if

1) you don't mind being blamed for your team's loss because you don't understand the healing, overhealing and ubercharge mechanics (doing things like overhealing only one player is not helpful; pocketing a player without realizing that he's kamikaze and willing to lead you to death is also not helpful)
2) you're fine being Target #1 assuming at least a few non-moron opponents, and having pretty poor self-defense capabilities

I don't recommend it for new players for those reasons

Heavy has both a low skill ceiling and a low skill floor. The main problem with suggesting it to new players is that they may find it very boring w/ the slow speed and the relative lack of things to do, compared to things like jumping w/ explosives (soldier, demo, engineer; pyro if you're very confident...), juggling or airshots, and the like. A new player who is bored, may stop being a player at all.

Every class is easy to use [assuming a generally equal skill level].
Every class is a challenge to master.

Heavy is super easy to play because is very forgiving, and wrecks most bad pubs pretty easily. Soldier is also an easy class to pick up, however, he has a high skill ceiling.

The easiest class to actually use efficiently? I'd honestly have to go with Engineer. Sure, with Heavy or Pyro you can just W+M1 your way through everything, but with that attitude you're an easy kill for pretty much any class that isn't a Medic (and even then, the Medic can run faster than the Pyro's flames, and his healing ability can help him shrug off the Heavy's bullets, even moreso with the Blutsauger) and is at their proper usual position (e.g. behind a Sentry for Engineer, in an ambush spot for Pyro/Heavy, behind them for Spy, relatively far away for Sniper). Engineer, on the other hand, is easy as crap to use efficiently. Now, I'm not saying that a bad Engineer won't get killed within a few minutes of his life, I'm just saying I think it's easier for a player to rack up more kills with an AI-controlled Sentry Gun at his disposal. All you have to do is put up a Sentry and Dispenser, keep hitting both with your wrench, probably die, repeat ad nauseum. Of course, you won't be remotely as much help to the team as you would be if you were, say, putting your nest in the enemy sewers with a teleporter attached, but chances are you'll get at least SLIGHTLY more kills and less deaths than you would running into the enemy base with your minigun/flamethrower spraying boolet/fire everywhere without any concern for your own life.

LOL @ the folks who say Medic. (You've never played Medic, have you?)

Exaggeration. Barring crits or explosive damage vulnerability, maximum damage from a single non-DH rocket from the stock launcher is 112 (rocket ramp-up maxes out at 125%, base damage is 90). It one-hits nothing except a Kunai spy or a Sandman scout, or Candy Cane scout.

When I was a noob, around 5 months ago, I only played as Heavy. Only because he was the easiest class for me because of health and the ability to kill ppl fast and easy.

The heavy is pretty easy to use but to me its scout.I can kill 9 players as scout.
